How SJWs neutralize rival institutions

This is a vital description of the way SJWs attack social media institutions outside their control, from a blog to an entire social media organization:
Containment, however, is not a winning strategy on its own. Even if you contain a conversation, even if you contain a user base, it can still grow in theory. As degenerate as people are today, quality is easily detected by others, whether it is great art, entertaining jokes or damning evidence. This is why, once a "space" (I'll drop the quotes now, but please note that I don't intend to justify the existing use of this terminology, I intend to dismantle it) is contained, the next move is to ensure its destruction. There are two ways to do this, we will now discuss the first of them:

Strategy 2: Dilution and poisoning

Just because a space is contained by no means implies that they intend to leave it alone. Containment keeps people inside the space from going out, like a gated city under siege by a numerically and tactically superior enemy. Dilution and pollution are the artillery and siege weapons deployed to make ensure everyone in the city starves or gets poisoned. Their aim is to destroys the target containment space and ensure those inside surrender and assimilate into the outer safe space.

What keeps a space alive? Two key ingredients: new users and new content (also known as OC). A new participants/lurkers, after becoming familiar with a space, create new content. The OC doesn't make itself after all, and every individual has a finite amount of time and finite will to continue. If they feel they are alone, lacking the will to continue, they will give up. New content, attracts new people and if it directs them to the space that created it, they can participate and grow it. Thus the two parameters are tightly coupled. Lose one and you lose the other.

By diluting the content that exists in a space with bad quality content, it will repel new users. Subtle sliding and shitposts are the main weapon of choice. Burying OC, burying quality posts and ensuring only the rubbish rises to the top. This has an additional benefit, the shitposting will force some users to demand a higher level of moderation. This will go back to the phase of containment, where infiltrating parties will be able to contain the containment through various rules as we saw on gghq and as we are seeing on KiA. The reaction is expected as is part of the strategy.

The other, much more dangerous weapon is poisoning, inserting bad ideas, rotten OC into the target. Making their OC less special/less distinct than that which can be obtained outside in the "safe space". Forcing those inside to play by the rules of the outside, changing their language. Calling them "edgelords" for being different, to shame them from creating certain content. We saw this on KiA where moderators will ban anyone who will call Brian Flynt a man. We also saw this on GGHQ where "dangerous ideas" were censored and the users banned for posting it. The justification is always perception by the outside.

Furthermore, promotion of mixing the enemy narrative and compromising also disinterests new users. An extreme position attracts a lot more people than a dilute position. At this point in time, you can see on twitter how closely the so-called #GamerGate activists resemble the SJWs themselves, from their language, smarm, mannerism and even their beliefs. This is because they are acting as the poison, while simultaneously diluting the discussion with their own low quality content.
Keep this in mind as you begin to use Gab, Big Fork, and other Alt-SocialMedia. The SJWs will be throwing everything they have at these alternatives in an attempt to neutralize them.

We're already seeing that today with Twitter's attempt to block access from Twitter to this blog. Remember, if you post links here, use one of the many country suffixes, so instead of .com, use .it, .fr, or .de. They'll likely get around to blocking all those too, but remember the rule: make the rubble bounce. We can't stop them from doing it, but we can make it an ongoing pain in their posterior.

And keep in mind one reason this blog still has lively and informative discourse in the comments is because the moderators and I ruthlessly weed out every SJW, troll, and hasbari who attempts to derail it.

Vox, do you have any sort of record of what posts get deleted by the admins?

Google is playing around with tech for automated moderation of "hateful" content. They trained their machine learning system using using a database of NYTimes comments (and moderated comments).

It would be nice for the Alt Right to have a similar tech, targeted towards spammers, concern trolls, and prog cucks.

If you have a record of the censored comments, fantastic. If not, if there is an easy way to save them, consider going to to the trouble. They would make a nice training dataset for future ALtRight comment moderation.

As the progs all shut down their comment sections, open and useful comment sections will be of increasing strategic importance in the meme wars.

Why is the other side winning? Because of well thought out, long-term and widely applied strategies. We shall start with the most important one.
Strategy 1. Containment [or soft censorship]
Every wonder why SJWs love to use the word "space"? "Safe space", "this space" and so on? Because they're viewing all matters of discourse as a field to be conquered in a war. Their aim is essentially to turn every non-contained space into a "safe space".


Wait. What? The other side is winning? Huh?

OT but interesting. Here is a Zerohedge writers take on what the Alt Right is...

"I don’t affiliate with Republicans, but I am happy to support a Republican that proves he or she has no interest in dictating my principles or my future. Same with a Democrat. Same with any black or white or brown person. Same with any gay or straight person. I really don’t care; stay out of my way and I’ll stay out of yours. Get in my way, however, and I will step on you. If you’re bigger than me, I’ll dislocate your kneecaps and then step on you. There is no despot so big that they are immune to the heel of a strategically placed boot.

This, I would say, is a defining principle behind those of us who make up the so-called “alt-right;” the people Hillary Clinton recently referred to as “the deplorables.” When describing this subculture of “miscreants” I often use the title of the “liberty movement.” We are defined and unified by our desire for a society based on the integral love of freedom and a fervent opposition to collectivism and totalitarianism. For this, we are called “deplorable.” But let’s extrapolate on that a little…"

There are some assumptions here the Shitlibs have that don't work in Shitlord land.

1. Shitlibs are lazy. They want to monetize the conversations others have. They don't have the intelligence and work ethic required to find new content. Thus, they can be gamed.

2. Shitlibs assume that they have a right to speak everywhere. Regardless. I ate lunch today at a place with a "Safe Space" notice on the wall. Was polite. Won't go back. But their house, their rules. But the left do not believe in the banhammer, and are shocked when it is used on them.

3. Shitlibs want to regulate their enemies. This should be the fourth rule: shitlibs always regulate. They harass. This means that a lot of Right blogs die, because dealing with these people is draining.

4. Shitlibs assume that if they take out the leader all will be well. Not the case. Vox is a competent SDL, but if he falls, someone else will keep the message going.

Because reality wins despite the narrative. And because it is fairly easy to buy hosting space and set up your own system.

So when the fork comes, set up the rules, and kick out those who do not comply. The lack of noise in the signal will ensure that people follow your fork and not the other one.

But expect louder howls and tantrums than when the Dragon supplanted the Hugo.

They go on to propose that, "the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups",[35] where they suggest, among other tactics, "Government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action."[35] They refer, several times, to groups that promote the view that the US Government was responsible or complicit in the September 11 attacks as "extremist groups."

American hero Henry Ford:
"Controlling the world's sources of news, All-Judaan can always prepare the minds of the people for its next move.
The greatest exposure yet to be made is the way that news is manufactured and the way in which the mind of whole nations is molded for a purpose. When the powerful Jew is at last traced and his hand revealed, then comes the ready cry of persecution and it echoes through the world press.
The real causes of the persecution (which is the oppression of the people by the financial practices of the Jews) are never given publicity.

All-Judaan has its vice-governments in London and New York. Having wreaked its revenge on Germany it will now go forth to conquer other nations. Britain it already has. Russia it is struggling for, but the chances are against it. The United States, with its good-natured tolerance of all races, offers a promising field."


“he does not believe in conspiracies which involve a large number of people, and it is with the utmost ease that his avowal of unbelief is accepted, for there is nothing more ridiculous to the Gentile mind than a mass conspiracy, because there is nothing more impossible to the Gentile himself… he knows how impossible it would be to band Gentiles together in any considerable number for any length of time in even the noblest conspiracy. Gentiles are not built for it. Their conspiracy, whatever it might be, would fall like a rope of sand. Gentiles have not the basis either in blood or interest that the Jews have to stand together. The Gentile does not naturally suspect conspiracy; he will indeed hardly bring himself to the verge of believing it without the fullest proof.
... Jews lead both divisions here in the United States.
... It is the Russian situation over again. Both ends of the movements, and the movements which operate within the movements, are under the leadership of Jews.”

Speaking of nutralizing, the debate has already been compromised.

The msm is already cooking up a plot to help Hillary in the debate.

Recently there has been talk of whether the moderator should be checking facts in real time during the debate.

Of course this is going to be very one sided against Trump and this is what the debate will look like.

The moderator with his own ear piece will ignore Hillary and just for optics sake challenge everything Trump says will a barrage of misinfotmation.

But who will fact check the fact checker?

So Trump won't be debating Hillary, but Lester Holt who through his own ear piece will be connected to a whole team of msm trolls.

Also, you have to consider the planned optics of Trump getting into heated arguments with a black man.

So they know Trump would come out appearing the stronger of the two candidates, but now they turn his apparent strength into a weakness by trying to make it look like he is beating up an old lady and a minority.

It's going to be a very tricky situation for Trump. Hope his campaign is considering these dynamics.

Indeed.

Tubal Cain had descended from Cain, the son of Lamech and Zillah, and the brother of Naamah, who Tubal is said to be the last soul survivor of the race of Cain after the flood. The Sons of Tubal Cain, his descendants are first recorded in the inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser I, by the King of Assyria in approximately the year 1100 BC. Later they are also reported by Tukulti-ninurta II, Ashurnasipal II, Sargon and Shalmaneserr III, and are mentioned as the Mushki.
TUBAL CAIN IN FREEMASONRY-shaq_freemason_ring
"Tubal Cain has been considered among Masons as a symbol of worldly possessions." - Albert Gallatin Mackey - A lexicon of freemasonry
Masonic Historian, Albert Gallatin Mackey had said that Tubal Cain is the Vulcan of the Pagans, and is thought to have been closely connected with ancient Freemasonry. Here is a quote on Tubal Cain from Mackey's book, A lexicon of freemasonry;
He was the inventor of edge-tools, and introduced many arts into society which tended towards its improvement and civilization. Tubal Cain is the Vulcan of the Pagans, and is thought to have been closely connected with ancient Freemasonry. Faber says that "all the most remarkable ancient buildings of Greece, Egypt, and Asia Minor, were ascribed to Cabirean or Cyclopean Masons," the descendants of Vulcan, Dhu Balcan, the god Balcan, or Tubal Cain. Oliver says, "In after times Tubal Cain, under the name of Vulcan and his Cyclops, figured as workers in metals and inventors of the mysteries; and hence it is probable that he was the hierophant of a similar institution in his day, copied from the previous system of Seth, and applied to the improvement of schemes more adapted to the physical pursuits of the race to which he belonged."*


For these reasons Tubal Cain has been consecrated among Masons of the present day as an ancient brother. His introduction of the arts of civilization having given the first value to property. Tubal Cain has been considered among Masons as a symbol of worldly possessions.
Tubal Cain swordThe first reference to Tubal Cain in Freemasonry is found in the "Legend of the Craft," where he is called "the founder of smith-craft. Tubal Cain was a master at forging weapons in which 33rd degree Freemason and Master Rosicrucian, Manly P. Hall says this about him and his weapons; "The Mason must 'follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare."
Tubal Cain is the password given in the Third Degree of Blue Lodge of the Master Mason.

Never commented here before, but have been reading you for some time. Two things occurred to me reading this--

1. I used to be an anarchist, involved in Occupy and so forth. The strategies outlined here were exactly the strategies used by the SJW movement against the "traditional" class warfare anarchists, especially online on places like reddit. Moderation was taken over, anarchism was redefined as SJW speech politics, users were isolated and banned. It's now at a point in the movement where mentioning traditional anarchist class politics can get you labelled racist, sexist, etcetcetc. ("Yes," the pink-haired computer programmer with the middle class salary sneered, "I've heard many WHITE MALES say that 'only class matters.'")

Not that it matters to me at this point, having switched sides and become conservative. (Conservative, not alt-right, but sympathetic to the same.) In the years since my deconversion I've thought of returning to the Catholic Church I grew up in. One of the reasons I haven't is that, in studying recent church history, I've realized that the same process was used to neutralize the Catholic Church. First the church was isolated. Then it was infiltrated. Now... The walls are white, the kids wear jeans and t-shirts, the incense and candles are gone. The music resembles something you'd hear in the grocery store on a bad day, and the buildings resemble shopping malls in the Soviet Union. And of course, Church doctrine has been redefined as the platform of the Democratic Party.
